Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Zebra" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the zebra's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circles should be roughly the same size and pay attention to the space between them. If they're too far apart, the zebra will be too long.
Step 2: Draw a circle that's about half the size of the first circle on the upper right side as a guide for the zebra's head.
Step 3: Draw a long U-shaped arc on the lower right side of the head as a guide for the zebra's muzzle.
Step 4: Draw a smaller arc on top of the head as a guide for the zebra's ear.
Step 5: Draw two lines under the zebra's body (one below each circle) as guides for the legs. Bend the line in front near the bottom and the line in the back close to the top.
